Yeah I was about to say that. However I cannot believe there is *STILL* no
Linux version!!! That's just outrageous. Let's hope the ElectricFence etc.
tools start to implement some of Purify's extra checks (the non-patented ones
at least, grr).
Also regarding non-leaking C++: stack-allocated automatic pointers are C++'s
big plus point IMHO, that'll stop leakage.
